HC Deb 13 July 1972 vol 840 c417W
62. Mr. Strauss

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what plans he has submitted to the Greater London Council under Circular 80 procedure for the construction of a new office complex at Vauxhall Bridge; how high is the tower block envisaged; and if he will arrange for a model and photo-montages of the proposal to be exhibited in the committee floor display area of the House of Commons.

Mr. Amery

Plans for a building to house 6,500 civil servants were formally submitted in October, 1971, following three years of informal discussions with the Planning Authority. The tower block of the proposed building is 450 feet high. I will arrange for a model to be exhibited as the right hon. Member has suggested.
